14-year-old Ben Williams has been forced to vape the entire cartridge after his father caught him trying his e-cigarette.
Williams was said to be curious after the cool kids at school were seen vaping behind the bike sheds.
He told us, “My Dad’s got one and I didn’t think he’d notice so I took it into the shed at the bottom of the garden to give it a go.
“I’ll be honest, I didn’t really like the taste, it’s pretty disgusting, but when my Dad heard me coughing he went ape-shit.
“I’ve never seen him so angry, then he said he was going to ‘teach me a lesson’.”
Boy caught vaping
Ben’s dad Simon spoke of his disappointment at his son’s actions.
He told us, “Look, his mother and I have told him that vaping is bad, and to do as I say, not as I do – but clearly he thinks he knows better than his Dad.
“So I did precisely what my Dad did to me, I made him finish the whole thing. Every last drop of liquid inside that cartridge.
“It took him just over 45 minutes, and he was sick twice, but I really don’t think he’ll be vaping again anytime soon.
“I mean, after the incident with my Dad I was a 20 a day man by the time I was 17, but that’s not the point.”
Ben said he had definitely learned his lesson.
He added, “Yeah, it was pretty horrible.
“That said, I couldn’t have a quick go on yours could I?”
